Meryl Streep's wonderful voice and characterizations - as well as recipes!
Intelligence, humor and biting sarcasm
Hearing about Rachel's first husband's hamster - too funny!
Very much so - I couldn't stop laughing
I will listen to this again and again. Meryl doing giggles, angry snorts, mimicking other people's accents - especially the men - hilarious!
Meryl Streep is Meryl Streep, you know? And the writting! Mindblowing good. Norah Ephron will never disappoint you.
When Rachel's doctor asked her: "Do you believe in love?".
What a true joy -- Nora Ephron's writing complimented by Meryl Streep's narration. Perfection. The only thing that could make this a better experience would be eating cheesecake while listening.
Say something about yourself!
Yes. It's not a story with great twists and turns. Easily enjoyable.
Many chick lit novels.
Her voice and emphasis are amazing.
The moment she realizes she has the means to leave. The lightness and freedom she must've felt was palatable.
I really didn't enjoy this book. There were parts that were comical but not enough in my opinion. I think some of the comedy would have been funnier if I had understood some of the Jewish customs. Meryl Streep did an amazing job. I really had to make myself finish the book.
Love books, reading or listening, wine and quiet evenings by the fire. Mystery's, paranormal, history and biographies.
Meryl Streep does a great job narrating this story. She makes the whole performance seem effortless.
Meryl Streep is the greatest actress of all time. She can convey a million words with the raise of an eyebrow. However, her narrating style is grating. It feels like she's trying to win an academy award with every sentence spoken, and she reads each sentence as if it has 3 or 4 periods in it. Pause, pause, pause. I just wanted a relaxing "read", but I ended up with nausea and a headache. I love Streep's voice, itself. Maybe she'll calm down and get better as time goes by. Anyway, I bet she'd make a wonderful narrator for children's books!
Heartburn is an intimate accurate depiction - optimistic, funny, yet heartbreaking - of a marriage crumbling at the hands of infidelity.
Key lime pie (you have to be there).
This is my first time listening to a book read by Meryl Streep. As we have come to expect, Meryl becomes her characters, and in this case I felt like she channeling Nora - at times I thought it was Nora reading. I read this after the passing of Nora Ephron (sigh) and I felt like I had the benefit of one more of her brilliant stories. A true treat.
Yes! It was funny, honest, warm & friendly.
I would not necessarily have gone for this had it not been for Meryl Streep's narration, but it was thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
